THE ROCK & THE RIPE Official Pledge
At an opening of a store in Andersonville this past weekend, and at the Chicago Cultural Center for World Theatre Day, and then in the coming weeks at several Chicago high schools, we have and will be asking people, young and old, to sign our pledge to stop bullying and discrimination of LGBT youth in schools and in society.
Take a look:
to support LGBT youth, stand up against anti-gay bullying from teachers, adults, students and leaders, and vow to inspire and empower youth to use their voice and live their lives as they believe they truly see themselves (without discrimination based on gender norms, sexuality, or religious/traditional values).
Every kid deserves to be happy, no matter what.
